KWV Van Der Hum Liqueur
Rating DescriptionThis spirit has received awards in the past but not recently enough to qualify for a Proof66 Rating.
KWV International was founded in 1918 in the western cape of South Africa and began producing brandy in 1926. Today, they produce both wine and spirits produced from various South African vineyards.
This is actually tangerine-flavored liqueur made in South Africa's wine region with herbs, brandy, wine, and sugary syrup to go with the tangerine peels. They bill themselves the "original cape liqueur." The name comes from its origins in the late 1600s when several men who disputed the creative rights agreed to call it "from the [anonymous] Mr. H.M." or, "Van Der Hum." (This from the site African Tradition.)
BTI makes the odd remark that this liqueur "should mix brilliantly with coke."
